We were so young and yet 



45 



FRESHMEN YEAR 




Peace and serenity reign over Central till. 
Dum de dum dum. . . . September 14, 1951. 
WE ARE THERE!!! 



We start our first year off with a bang when 
an A-Bomb drill turns into a Hebrew song and dance jam session. Our internal and 
superior instinct tells us there is no elevator and no pool. . . . We mass cut, but 
only half escape. Friedman was watching. . . . Incident in a museum — Topic: Rats. 
"Roitman, come away, they're alive." "I know, but they're my friends. . . . Mar- 
cia's walking, Marcia's gone, where's Marcia? "Well you see there was this open 
cellar door, and the next minute. . . ." Our society debut at Yedie's and Al's turns 
out to be the social event of the season. Yedie's last words, "When you gonna 
buy a jokebook?" ... If you think Jekyll and Hyde are bad you should see some 
of the mad scientists they ship us. . . . Two handsome young men enter our French 
class. Monsieur Stephen et Monsieur Arnold. . . . Exploring doctors stretch us out 
on cold slabs and poke around till we are lovely shades of red and blue. Three-fourths 
of the girls have flat feet, the other fourth have flat heads, but no matter. ... we 
all have blushing red faces! . . . Attendance in the park shows that 9 out of 10 
freshmen prefer squirrels to teachers. . . . 



Bassell 

starts preparing us for the English regents. . . . 
Sheila and Sue have a pleasant but short stay 
at Central — exit Sue Weber and Sheila Leifer! 
. . . Mr. Unger, like all civic minded, mature men, 
watches Gang Busters on T.V. So next day in what 
is our excuse for a civics class, Mr. Unger vs. 
the state (of insanity) in a notorious mock trial. 
The plaintiff John Q. Student charges Benedict 
A. Unger with marking on a curve, abusing rights 
and liberties of the students and of the use of 
zeros without a permit. The court was moved by 
the touching testimony. Nevertheless, the jury found 
the defendant guilty as charged and sentenced him 
to another year of teaching freshmen ! . . . 



46 




Freshmen decide to move to Russia. We didn't get to Russia but we did get to 
Bedford and Snyder. Russia would liave been better. We hated to evict the mice 
but it was either us or them. Unfortunately it had to be them. . . . Central and 
Erasmus. . . . Mutt and Jeff. Swiss cheese has nothing on Central. Tried to decorate 
the building ourselves. End result: "The Mob" autographs the walls. Friedman 
discovers the culprits. End result: "The Mob" serves detention with Ajax and a pail 
of water! . . . 



We get bricked in, glass proves to 
be no obstacle to snowballs. (Kallner got water 
on the brain in the form of a snowball) . . . 'C 
class talent becomes apparent when we present 
that smash hit, "Our Father's Talis" directed by 
Marilyn Lind. The father wasn't quite as dead 
as he should have been, thanks to Jeanette Kaplan. 





. . . April Fool's Day — instead cf chumash we 
prefer interior decorating. Our first assignment — 
Remodel the room! . . . 'Case of the Missing 
Briefcase' — victim — Rabbi Berenholz — Verdict 
— guilty (no mercy) Result — everyone gets minus 
5 — ! . . . During the Unger trial, Dorrit practiced 
penmanship. Where? On Mr. Unger's cuffs of 
course. Result — When Uncle Sam calls, Mr. Unger 
.eagerly becomes a pfc! . . 





We go Republican; 
"It's time for a change" Rabbi Friedman goes 
Democratic; "You never had it so good"! . . . 
Our mass cut with Berenholz cuts five points off 
our mark! . . . — Ravetch's definition of a tragedy: 
"A comedy that didn't get any laughs"! . . . Doc

G-D COUNTS HER TEARS 



By PHYLLIS LAUER 



People mocked the fact that I was planning to continue my Jewish education. 
They had said, and frankly led me to believe, that the active roles in Judaism were 
reserved for the male, for a woman's role in Jewish life should be a passive one. 

What a different understanding of our heritage and way of life the studies of 
Jewish History and Jewish Ethics have given me. These classes have taught me that, 
on the contrary, Judaism and Jewish life are built to a great extent around the active 
role that a Jewish woman must take. 

The basis of Jewish social life is the family, and Proverbs teaches us, "Hear 
my son, the instruction of thy fMher, and forsake not the teaching of thy mother." 
The mother's role was placed higher than the father's, for it was realized that if 
is the Jewish mother who raises the child in accordance with the precepts of the 
Torah, and conducts her home in a manner which illustrates the beauty of Jewish 
life, while the father is away all day earning a livelihood for his family. 

In no way is the Jewish woman looked upon 
by the Talmud as being inferior to the man. Her 
sphere of activity is different from man's but no 
less significant. It is to the woman that our Talmud 
assigns the credit if her husband and children 
apply themselves to Torah and Jewish stu 




50 






A conclusive proof of woman's dominant place 
in Jewish life is the undeniable fact that the hal- 
lowing of the Jewish home is her work. Our sages 
duly recognized her wonderful spiritual influence. 

As the Talmud puts it, "Love thy wife as thyself and honor her more than thyself. 
Be careful not to cause woman to weep for G-D counts her tears." 

Although in these modern United States equality was granted to woman through 
the Suffrage Act as late as 1920, Genesis tells us, "G-D created man in his own 
image, m,ale and female created He them." Both man and woman are in their spiritual 
nature equal to G-D and both were invested with the same authority. The wives of 
the Jewish forefathers are considered in the same light as their husbands. Devorah 
was a judge in Israel. Huldah was a prophetess and Salome Alexander was a queen 
in the times of the Second Temple. 

The heroic acts of Jewish women are responsible 
for the turn of history in so many cases. We need 
only mention Queen Esther, Ghana and her seven 
sons and Judith in the time of the Maccabbees. 

Central is teaching and amply preparing us 
for the role we must play as future Jewish women. 
The magnitude of this role' is something that will 
be found only in diaries of later, — later dates.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN AND I, THE PENNY 

By EVELYN SCHIFF 

Although my worth is the lowest in the land, I bear the face of the greatest 
American whose story from beginning to end is a symphony of courage and com- 
passion. 

I remember once when I was held in the palm of a five year old boy who pointed 
to my face and asked, "Father, who is that man on the penny?" The father looked 
a moment and then replied, "That man, my son, opened the gates that locked us in 
and let us walk out free." 

How proud I am to wear the face of Abraham Lincoln. 



55 



When I find myself in a humble home, where poverty has discouraged the family, 
I feel like shouting, "The greatest leader in American history was born in just such 
a home as yours." 

When I am with a person struggling to make something of himself against over- 
whelming odds, he has only to look at my face and remember the heritage of hope 
Abraham Lincoln has left him. He was very poor and lived from hand to mouth, 
but that did not discourage him. He was always trying to better himself by reading. 

Recently I accidentally fell and rolled on the office floor of a young lawyer. He 
picked me up and, when he looked at my face, a smile of relief spread over his 
features, and he said to a colleague, "Abe Lincoln never pleaded a case if he thought 
his client was in the wrong, and neither will I." 

For a while I was the lucky piece on the desk of a history teacher, and many 
wonderful things I heard her tell her class about her favorite former president. 
"Uprightness of character has its own reward and is soon noticed by the people 
around us," she said. "The natural kindliness of Abraham's tone, softening prejudice 
and disarming ill feeling, would often open, to his reasoning, minds most unwilling 
to receive it. Sympathy was the strongest and predominating element in his nature. 
As his sympathy went forth to others, it attracted others to him. He had grown up 
among the plain people and they felt drawn to 
him. In his ways of thinking and feeling he had 
become a gentleman in the highest sense of the 
word, but the polish did not extend to his exterior. 
He never lost that look of rusticity, and people 
in all walks of life considered him one of them." 
That was the introduction she gave the class, before 
she told them of his entering politics, his great 
speech in Congress on anti-slavery, the debates 
he had with Douglas, who believed that slavery 
was a matter of choice, and himself who wanted 
to abolish it. Douglas said, "G-D has put good 

and evil before man and told him to make his choice." Lincoln replied, on the con- 
trary, "G-D has told man about the tree that bore the fruit of evil and forbade him 
to partake of it." 

Once, I, the penny found myself in a psychiatrist's office, listening to a patient's 
tale of woe. "You think you have trouble," the doctor told him, "Well, listen to this 
story about a man, a man who was the gentlest and most peace loving of mortals, 
a man who could not witness pain without feeling a pang of pain himself. Such a 
man found himself called upon to lead his country into one of the bloodiest civil 
wars. As Lincoln had stated, 'A house divided amongst itself cannot stand.' " 

I was lying on the desk with some other pennies, 
in a little girl's room when I heard her mother 
tell her the story of Cinderella and how she for- 
gave her wicked sisters when she became a 
princess. 





56 





"Mother," I wanted to tell her, "when 
your child gets older, you will not have to resort 
to fiction to teach her this lesson in forgiveness. 
When President Lincoln began, his opponents 
stood before him baffled and humiliated. He did 
not lose a minute to stretch his hand out in 
friendship and say, 'May I ask those that were with 
me join with me, those that were against me." 
I was resting lightly in the pocket of a little boy who was standing in front 
of the statue of the great man whose face I bear. The father told him, "This 
president was killed by a fanatic who thought he was an enemy, but he was the 
best friend this country ever had. Come let us read together the words inscribed 
on the statue. 'In this temple as in the hearts of the people for whom he saved 
the union, the memory of Abraham Lincoln is enshrined forever.' " 




The official junior cry, "Sarah, help us with our math." . . . Mr. Lilker's 
birthday we throw a big party starring Hershi's Knishes and Roitman's cheesecake 
(the kind you eat) ! . . . Rudoff's faith in little old ladies is restored when her 
wallet is handed in! . . . Roitman, Rabinowitz and Pakter hold mass 'prophets' 
sessions in the basement one hour before the finals! . . . "Miss Pakter come here!" 
"I'm not Pakter I'm Intrater." She's the Chani Intrater that won the Barton's essay 
contest. We all got ice cream and loads of candy.

IT IS A WOMAN'S WORLD 

By DORRIT BLECH and EVELYN RUDOFF 

Now that our high-school days are over, we feel that we have become women 
of the world. Strangely enough, our worldliness is not all due to booklearning; 
for how can anyone be considered worldly without having visited a police station or 
a bar, without ever having frequented a department store? 

Before you get the wrong impression, we will explain how these unusual 
experiences have contributed invaluably to our education. When Central moved to 
a new location curiosity overcame us and we decided to explore the neighborhood. 
Much to our delight we discovered that no less than half a block away was a 
police station. Whenever we had a free moment we would stand outside hoping 
to catch a glimpse of a hardened criminal being brought to justice. Finally, we 
got up enough courage to venture into that fearful building. As we entered, the 
desk sergeant covered his curiosity with a stern look. "What are you doing here?" 
he asked. We had to think fast for a plausible excuse why two innocent looking 
young girls should be in a police station. "M-m-may w-we t-talk to the d-detec- 
tives?" We were glad to see that our courage had not left us. Suddenly, the 
expression on the face of the desk sergeant changed from one of sterness to that of 
us to the ofiBce of the detectives. We must admit 
quiet amusement. 




62 








Much to our surprise he directed 
that at this point our courage began to falter, for 
the picture we had in our minds of a detective 
was a cross between Rocky King and Sergeant 
Joe Friday. 



Now was the time to organize our story. We 
figured that the most decent type of person (be- 
sides a policeman) to have business in a police 
station was a reporter. Cleverly assuming the guise 
of reporters, we approached a very pleasant look- 
ing man and told him that we wished to speak to 
the detectives. Imagine our relief, when we found 
that this pleasant looking man was the detective. 

Immediately, the fearful images in our minds were dispelled. We proceeded 
to tell him who we were and he obliged us by answering our questions and 
telling us that the life of a detective is not as glamorous as it is depicted on 
television. We were completely disillusioned. 

After the novelty of the police station had worn off we resumed our explora- 
tions. Not far from the police station was a nice respectable bar. Never having been 
in a bar, we decided to take advantage of this opportunity. The bar was dimly lit. 

Nonchalantly we walked up to the counter and gave our order. The bartender 

eyed us suspiciously, but nonetheless, set our drinks on the counter. Maybe it was 

just the atmosphere but it was the best milk we ever tasted. 
Another one of our favorite hangouts was Macy's. 

Here our economics course really came in handy. 

Now we could see the advantages of a large scale 

department store over a small one. In Macy's 

we could shop unmolested without any money in 

our pockets. In a large store we give the appear- 
ance of prospective customers, and walk around 

the store, inspecting the merchandise. While trying 

on a ridiculous looking hat we noticed a crowd 

surrounding a booth. This no doubt meant a 

special sale. One of our weaknesses was bargains. 

Excitedly we rushed over to the counter and were 

stunned, for that salesman was some bargain! We 

stood around gaping at this handsome young 

salesman. Finally, we were able to tear our eyes 

from him and focused our attention on the product 

he was selling. 




63 



What a letdown to see him sell eye glass cleaner, but we were 
willing to buy anything from him. We must have made him feel a little self 
conscious as we watched him demonstrate his product, for he began to falter in his 
salestalk. Reluctantly we took our leave, for it was time to go back to school. We 
wanted an excuse to return to Macy's without appearing conspicuous. Finally, we 
hit upon a scheme. We returned to the store two hours later with our pockets 
stuffed with eye glasses. With great anticipation we rushed over to the counter and 
emptied our pockets. We looked up and much to our disgust in place of our 
Adonis was a short, bald, middle-aged man. We stood around in agony while he 
proceeded to clean all those eye glasses. Even after all his work, his product did 
not impress us. It was no bargain. 

Viciously he eyed us as we took our leave. We returned the clean eye glasses 
to the puzzled but satisfied girls. 

Now that we have attained the maturity which comes with being sober 
seniors, we look back on our many adventures with amusement, realizing that these 
experiences were an integral part of our education. 



T'was the day before Tuesday, a blizzard was blizzin. 
When 300 inmates entered Central's prison. 
And all of a sudden, there arose quite a clatter. 
We ran up the stairs to see what was the matter. 
The news spread like wildfire, not a single soul tarried. 
To broadcast the news that Bassell would be married. 
But behind all the smiles we were quite enraged, 
Cause he hadn't even told us that he was engaged. 



Good evening Mr. & Mrs. T. A. High Schools and all the Yeshivas in 
Brooklyn, let's go to press! . . . Well, as predicted, the greatest society blow of 
the season has finally arrived. That internationally, notorious, infamously famous, 
ultra-exclusive bachelor fraternity the 'Phri-Betta Lotkas' has lost one of its most 
confirmed members. Mr. Perfidio Roberto E. Bassellinio, who came over on the 
'Juneflower' (missed the Mayflower, you know) has been married to Miss Marilyn 
Fishman. The nuptials were held one week before the betrothels were announced! 



ask Mr, Bassell to Charleston. . . .

DEBATING TEAM 



Four years ago, Central's Debating Team enjoyed a very good reputation. 
Debates were limited to Uptown T.A. and Brooklyn T.A. Of course inter-school 
debates were also taking place. That was the 1951-1952 season. The team beat 
U.T.A. every time, and our losses to B.T.A. were rare and far between. 

Then came the 1952-1953 season. Something happened to the team. Our 
first debate of the season with U.T.A. We lost. The topic was, "Resolved: That 
a system of wage and price controls should be adopted by the U.S. Government." 
Central had the afiBrmative and U.T.A. presented the negative arguments. Sylvia 
Liss was Central's Debating Manager. Through her efforts we managed to 
keep an even score all through the season, though nothing outstanding occurred. 
Sylvia had a hard time. The team was composed largely of Freshman who, until 
that year, had absolutely no debating experience whatsoever. 

Then came the 1953-1954 season. The new manager was Dorrit Blech. Dorrit 
was, and still is a girl with determination. She started work with the team. Regular 
weekly meetings were instituted. Debating tryouts were long and exacting. Dorrit 
realized that the team lacked experience and know-how. She arranged for a 
member of the Yeshiva University Debating Team to attend all meetings and to 
coach the girls. Yeshiva sent Joseph Kaplan, a sophomore at the time. 

Joe immediately instituted a vigorous training program. One week he lectured 
the team members on debating technique. The next week, certain appointed girls 
held an intra-team debate, attempting to apply the pointers that they had learned. 
When all of the debaters were seated Joe rose and gave a detailed critique on 
each speaker. Each girl came to know her individual faults and slip-ups. This 
process was repeated several times. 

That year eight debates were held. Central won five and lost only three. By 
the time May arrived our reputation as a capable team was established. Because 
of this, we managed to make history, by being allowed to hold a debate at 
Yeshiva University. The debate was with U.T.A. 



WHAT HAPPENED? 

By NAOMI SIEGFRIED 

One clear Spring morning. May 13, 1954 to be exact, most people unconcernedly 
went about their routine affairs unaware that what is now Yeshiva history was then 
a matter of current importance. 

Early that clear Spring day, three intrepid members of Central's promising 
debating team were standing in the fourth car of the B.M.T. subway bound for 
Washington Heights. The three debaters, Dorrit Blech, Naomi Siegfried and Naomi 
Roitman, were chewing gum, comparing notes and feeling very confident. Hours 
later, the three were seated in a candy store enjoying ice cream sodas. What had 
transpired during the interval? 



80 



After reaching the majestic Yeshiva building, the girls came to the auditorium 
to make a few hurried last minute changes in their speeches. They were now just a 
bit nervous. ... A few minutes later, after the student audience was seated, the 
debate was ofiScially begun. 

Suddenly it was over, and the hushed audience waited expectantly for the 
decision of those members of the faculty who were to judge the debate. In the 
next few minutes, the three Central Juniors had made Yeshiva history. This was 
the first time a Central team had ventured uptown to debate and had been 
victorious by a unanimous decision of the judges. 

Thus, still later, on that same clear May day, many passengers on the downtown 
train had occasion to wonder what could possibly have put such a triumphant look 
upon the jubilant faces of three high school girls whose cheerfulness was matched 
only by the sunshine of the day. 

There is no doubt that Joseph Kaplan's patient persistence was largely respon- 
sible for that victorious debating season. He not only taught the girls debating 
technique but also encouraged them constantly and brought out in each girl, the 
most important trait of all to a debater — self confidence. 

When 1954 arrived, the team hoped that their coach would continue to work 
with them. Dorrit Blech was once more elected Debating Manager. The school 
was very satisfied with her able management of the past year. Miriam Resnikoff 
was appointed secretary of the team. Joe stayed on to instruct the girls. After 
two weeks of tryouts, six new members were added to the team. 

This year, one debate has been held. The topic was, "Resolved: That 
Communist China should be admitted to the United Nations." Central took the 
negative arguments and won once more. Debaters were: Naomi Roitman, First 
Speaker; Phyllis Lauer, Second Speaker; Gloria Wallen, Rebuttal. Because of a 
late start there have been no other debates as yet. Dorrit has several debates 
scheduled for the near future. Plans are being made to extend our activities to 
debates with public high schools as well as Yeshiva high schools.

Basketball has not always held its rightful status in Central. When looking 
back upon the history of the team, one can see marked progress in its accomplish- 
ments. 

During the 1951-1952 seasons, Honey Seelenfreund was the Athletic Manager 
of the school. During that time, two games were played, and both were with 
Ramaz. Central won one game in December, and lost the other, in February. 



The year passed, and Central didn't exactly feel up to bragging about herself 
to the world of sports. Then came a revolution. Debby Riback was elected Athletic 
Manager for the 1952-1953 seasons. 

Debby took the team in hand, and produced an end result, which we shall 
not soon forget. 

Five games were played during that year. On December 15, 1952, we lost 
to Bentley High, with the close score of 25-22. On December 22, 1952, we beat 
Flatbush Yeshiva, 23-5. On January 3, 1953, we won a game with Central Alumnae. 
The score was 36-28. January 10, 1953, was the date of a second game with Flatbush 
Yeshiva, which we won with a score of 36-16. Our third game with Flatbush that 
year was also a victory for Central. The score was 28-18. 



82 



When the 1953-1954 basketball season arrived, we realized that our team was 
getting up in the world. Our reputation warranted playing with well established 
teams of other schools. 

We played ten games that year. On November 16, 1953, we won a game with 
Lexington School For The Deaf. The score was 33-29. On November 24, 1953, we 
lost to Flatbush Yeshiva with a score of 31-26. Central played Brooklyn Friends 
High School, December 9, 1953, and lost, 32-24. Our next game was with Flatbush 
once more. This time we won, 19-12. We lost to Ramaz, on January 17, 1954, with 
a close score of 25-24. On January 22, 1954, we played against Dalton. They won, 
88-26. Bentley High School was our next opponent, on March 1, 1954. The outcome 
of this game was a tie, 22-22. We tried Flatbush next, and beat them once again, 
with a score of 40-29. This was on March 2, 1954. Our team played on March 3rd, 
also, against Midwood High. This time we lost, 26-21. On March 16th, 1954, we 
played Flatbush Yeshiva and won 31-26. 



Our confidence in Debby Riback was evidenced by her election to the post of 
Athletic Manager for the 3rd consecutive year. 

The team has played 8 games this year, 1954-1955. On November 29, 1954, 
we lost to City College. The score was 11-4. Of course, we would have liked to 
win this one, but the very fact that a college team was willing to compete with 
us was a victory in itself.

WE LEAVE BEHIND 



We waited four years for this day to come. 
But why is the happiness incomplete? 
Because we leave behind a gaping hole, 
An empty seat. 

Not only this do we leave behind. 
But a memory, a shadow of years gone by, 
A tinkling laugh, an echoing voice, 
A lonely sigh. 

We leave now, new horizons to seek, 
A new world beckons to our call. 
We stop to think, do we want to leave? . . 
Not at all. 

We turn our heads to gaze at the walls, 
An aching heart, a tear in our eye. 
We will return, though not to learn; 
Goodbye. 

A wistful smile, a grateful heart, 
A thank-you note with emotions signed. 
To Central, all these things 
We leave behind. 



Ruth Klotz
